Amazing Grace with Moving in the Spirit
October 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25
Come experience a moving way to pray. Together we will share Amazing Grace in a gestural prayer that is an outward expression of our inner spirit and faith. No previous experience is necessary – just a willing spirit and an open heart. Dress comfortable – looser clothing is recommended.
Moving in the Spirit was conceived by Karen Donahue Rossignol and Lisa Muscanell-DePaola. Our intention is to share movement as prayer in an exploration of the outward expression of our inner spirit and faith. Karen and Lisa have choreographed, taught, and danced many liturgical pieces to share with retreatants at Our Lady Calvary Retreat Center and Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center. Over the last several years, they have facilitated workshops and Advent programs at area parishes.
Karen Donahue Rossignol has studied and taught many types of dance including modern, ballet, jazz, and liturgical dance. She has had the privilege of studying and performing with members of the Boston Liturgical Dance Ensemble (BLDE), directed by Fr. Robert VerEcke – ‘the dancing priest’ at Boston College. Karen is on the faculty at Dance Step in Berlin, CT.
Lisa Muscanell-DePaola has been dancing since the age of 3, adding lyrical and modern dance to her studies through college. She has taught liturgical dance to children at St. Dunstan Church in Glastonbury, CT and at numerous peace festival events in the Greater Hartford area.
